Crochet Decoration Pattern by Croby Patterns

I believe it’s can be a little late to talk about Christmas ornaments for some of you. Many of you opened the doors of your homes to the holiday spirit two weeks ago when December started. Shopping malls started in the middle of November. Your homes are probably decorated and Christmas trees full of ornaments in your favorite color by now.

But even if all the branches of your Christmas tree are full, there is still a place for some handmade ornaments. Those special ones that are made with love and creativity of you or your little ones. Do you still remember those made from the pasta? Or paper snowflakes? They were so popular back when I was a child.

Today we are going to be making a cute and easy last minute Christmas decorations. Get your crochet hook and yarn ready!

For this pattern, I was using my 3.0 mm crochet hook and Drops Muskat 100% cotton yarn in color 2 or light blue. I was working in rounds, but instead of joining after each round I was just continue crocheting the next one. To create my first loop I was using a technique called a magic ring where you create a special loop and make your first round in it. The best thing is, the loop closes entirely and your fiberfill will stay in the ball.
Make sure your stitches are made very tight. If you crochet rather loosely, try with a smaller crochet hook.
